FOOTBALL OFF SEASON MEANS ONE THING AND ONE THING ONLY…

…CRIME.

Yes, it’s the off season and that seems to be when any number of wayward gridironers either find trouble or finally get caught – hard to tell which.
Joining the 2010 offseason police-blotter parade is N.C. State football player J.R. Sweezy.

Sweezy has been suspended indefinitely after getting into a late-night fight with a shuttle bus driver in Mooresville on Thursday.

Sweezy, 20, was charged with misdemeanor assault and misdemeanor larceny, according to the Mooresville Police Department, after getting into a physical altercation with David Scott Magnuson and Nicholas Kaplan at 2:37 a.m.

Sweezy, listed as 6 feet 5 and 293 pounds on N.C. State's roster, was asked to leave the shuttle bus by Magnuson, the driver, for acting "loud and obnoxious," according to a press release by the Mooresville Police Department.

As he exited the bus, Sweezy knocked over Magnuson's tip jar. Magnuson and Kaplan then left the bus to confront Sweezy, and the altercation turned physical.

According to a News 14 Carolina report, Magnuson is 65-years-old.
